Atudo, Indeche Join Stars, Were Available

AEL Kalloni FC winger, Paul Were will be available for Kenya’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers return leg clash against Guinea-Bissau set for Sunday, March 27.

The former AFC Leopards wide man missed the 1-0 loss to the Djurtus this past Wednesday due to issues with his traveling documents but his availability will be a refreshing welcome to Stanley Okumbi’s side which hugely suffered from lack of width against Bissau.

Stars however will make do without center-half David ‘Calabar’ Owino who is suspended after picking up a second booking in this round.

Okumbi has called Posta Rangers defender Joackins Atudo as cover for the Zesco United man who was by some distance¬†Kenya’s best player in Bissau. Atudo will compete with Brian Mandela, Musa Mohammed and James Situma for the two center-backs positions, unless Okumbi feels it necessary to field the latter two as full-backs ala in the Bissau match.

AFC Leopards keeper Lucas Indeche has also joined the squad to provide cover to Arnold Origi and Boniface Oluoch.

Kenya, currently bottom of Group E with a single point from three games, must beat Bissau to have any chance of making it out of the group as one of the top two teams.
